Shaving skuttles

These are rather unique and are for the discerning male who uses the old-fashioned way to shave, with soap and a brush. They were inspired bymy friend Ross Anderson, wh is a collector.  These porcelain skuttles  consist of 2 nested vessels: the outer vessel, similar to a pitcher, holds hot water that keeps the soap in the inner dish warm.  You simply pour hot water through the spout and then place your soap in the inner dish. Simple to use and easy to clean, as the soap is only placed in the inner dish. They are about 4” high and about 3/12” diameter at the top. Prices are $45 except for skuttle-4 which is priced at $40. Two views of each are shown.
